The Innkeeper 2012
I am delighted to present my newly finished Doll - the first for the year!  This is 'The Innkeeper' inspired by Les Miserables, to go with 'Jeanne - the Innkeepers Wife' that I made in 2010, so he's been a long time in the making!

 The Innkeeper will be a new class on Cloth Doll Artistry starting in February, so will not be available as a pattern for a while. I counted the hours and it has taken me over 45 hours to design and make the doll and put the pattern together at the same time! It is filled with drawings & photo's, so plenty to learn!  I am really keen to encourage people to upskill their talents with this art form, which is so gratifying!

 Another Class I will have on CDA will be about cobbling shoes for cloth dolls, so anyone who takes these classes should find them an interesting challenge!  I hope you will look out for them!

Now all I have to do is find a buyer for this chap!

He's fabulous:) Your shoe cobbling class sounds very interesting and different. I must check it out.

Great detail. The shoes are wonderful as well as everything else. I can imagine the time you spent on him.

I'm so impressed, what a great doll!! Don't think you'll have trouble finding a buyer. I'm going to register for this class, I'm sure. I just bought your Pecival Ponce pattern but I think he will just have to wait!

He is amazing and such a perfect partner for the Innkeeper's wife.
